Wonderful, wide, mostly-level gravel spots with shaded spots overlooking Bear Creek. We stayed 2 nights after full days of fishing the nearby trout streams. Iowa now requests that you buy firewood where you burn it to avoid spreading a tree-killing pest, and the super-nice owners will bring fire rings to your site. The roads leading to the campground are all dusty gravel, but the campground is silent at night, with no traffic noise at all. We will be back again as soon as possible! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

What a gem!!!...Huge grassy sites, Awesome 2 acre man made lake that they call the pool, tube trips down the river (4 hour or 8 hour ride) and they actually let you use your own tube if you have one. There are some negatives. The pool and office close at 6 during the week (not sure about the weekend), be prepared to have no cell phone or internet service (they are working on the Wi-Fi) as you are in the middle of nowhere Iowa, dump station connection is odd...But those couple drawbacks are nothing compared to all the positives about this place. We would go back for sure, but it would have to be a extended stay (far from home). Great place! We camped here in a Motorhome.

Looking for a "boys weekend" of camping and canoeing. Picked this resort based because of location, user ratings and the fact that they also run the canoe shuttle here. We arrived very late on Friday night, but had called ahead for the site number. Wasn't too hard to find, even in the dark. Sites were large, had more than enough room for my hybrid, slide-outs and 14 pax van. Woke up in the morning and really realized what a great choice we'd made. It's a beautiful area and great campground. The owner was more than accommodating even though he had a family function that weekend. The only problem I had was that there was only one urinal, toilet and shower for each VERY rustic bath house (don't know what the women's bath houses had), and there were only two bath houses for 115 sites. This might explain why they were as dirty as they were. They weren't filthy: I just wasn't all that crazy about it when I had to go do my "business". In all, it was a great weekend and there's no doubt that I'd return. If I don't, it's not because I wasn't happy. It'd just be because I wanted to try something different. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

If you like the great outdoors, swimming, fishing, tubing and relaxing by the campfire with a wonderful ocean of stars, this is the place for you! Second time we have been here and love it! Will be going back for years to come! We camped here in a Motorhome.
